There will come a time…

There will come a time when God will require you to focus on Him and Him alone. He will direct you to take your time, your resources, your hands, and your heart off the great things others are doing so that you can focus on Him and what He wants you to do.

There will come a time when you must learn to stand alone with Jesus; even in a crowd of those that love Him dearly and likely love you too.

There will come a time to leave behind the need for a human “word” to hear the Word the Holy Ghost wants to say to you – about YOU!

There will come a time when a prayer line is formed, and you will stand still happy that the only person praying over you is JESUS as He intercedes at the right hand of the Father.

There will come a time when you want His call to come forth in you more than you want the comfort of many connections and circles. The circle He wants you in, He is forming Himself!!!

There will come a time when you will, of necessity, measure all words, actions, and attitudes against the Word of God. Oh but, He will require you measure your own heart first!

There will come a time when He will allow you to stand awkwardly and even stumble a bit to then turn around and bless you with a victory dance.

There will come a time when through the pain and tears of loss and disappointment, you realize that you have lost much of your vision and yet you can see more clearly than ever His!!!

There will come a time when Jesus will teach you  – HE is MORE than enough.

The final thing I want to share today is this –

God called me to do a work in this season, for His glory. I know this because I do know His voice!!! Some days I feel anointed for it and some days I feel like a starfish out of the water waiting on a wave to carry me back to some past place…but here in this present place, He has taught me much about peace and contentment. Of course, I have desires, but I come through this time having no real ambition other than to do God’s will no matter my desires. He alone knows my path, what is sent to trip me, and if I will allow Him to carry me through. Minute by minute I need Him and so I pray again today as every day that I am found pressing on – faithful in Him – declaring to my world that JESUS is more than enough for me!

GLORY!!!

On Earth as It Is in Heaven

wigglesworth

Wigglesworth was conducting a crusade for Davies. One night in the healing line, there was a young man with a bandage around his throat. When the evangelist asked him, “What’s up?” He replied in a hoarse whisper, “Can God do anything for me?” “Of course He can,” answered Wigglesworth, “unless He has forgotten how to make voice boxes.”

He placed his hands on the young man’s throat, prayed in his usual way, then turned the young man around, saying, “Go home and eat a meal of meat and potatoes.” The young man turned back, “I can’t, sir! I feed myself through this” pointing to a tube in the side of his throat. Wigglesworth turned him around again, gave him a gentle push, and said, “Go on your way. Do as you’re told. Be not faithless, but believing.

The next night, the young man was again in the healing line. When he came forward, Wigglesworth said, “What are you doing here? I prayed for you last night.” The young man answered in a normal voice, “I’ve come to tell you what God did for me last night.” Turning him to face the audience, Wigglesworth said, “You don’t need to tell me. Tell them!

After receiving the preacher’s stern rebuke, I went home and asked my mother to cook me a solid meal. She argued with me, but I told her to please prepare it. I was going to eat it. She prepared the meal. I sat down and took the first mouthful, chewing it a long time, hesitating to swallow it. Finally, with fear and trembling, I swallowed that first mouthful. It just slipped down my throat, no pain, no obstruction, no trouble at all. Since then, I’ve had more meals, and I’m looking forward to one after this meeting.”

Wigglesworth asked, “Then what are you doing with that bandage around your throat?”  The young fellow explained that it covered the tube through which he had been receiving food and that he was going to the hospital the next day to have it removed.

The evangelist quietly but confidently said, “What the Lord has begun, He can complete.” He removed the bandage, gently drew the tube out of the young man’s neck, then placed his thumb and forefinger on each side of the hole. Those who watched were astonished. Before their eyes, the hole healed right up.

What he had seen God do in Heaven, He had done on earth.
